[YAK] My computer crashed!


#1

To all my friends on Orchid:

Two weeks ago, my hard drive crashed. I had backed up most files,

but never thought to back up my email addresses. As a result, I lost
all of your addresses, and my favorites files. : ( So, drop me a
line and I’ll add you to my new address list.

I am also looking to reconnect to the service bureau that I had

talked with last month. My client is ready to move forward, finally,
and I’ll need to send you drawings for CAD/CAM work. We had discussed
a pendant with a lotus flower and some kanji. If you can contact me,
I am desperate to proceed!

Thanks,
Doug

Mine also crashed a few weeks ago…sent out request for
emails…but it never got posted!! I’m specifically looking for the
folk from the Asheville area I’ve had contact with as I want to keep
in touch with them when I move there!

This is one more reason to set up a POP account, or at least a
Hotmail or Yahoo! email account. They are free and also come with an
address book. Take an hour or so when you get a chance to at least
enter your email recipient addresses on one of these services,
you’ll never lose them again.

Another way to retain email addresses, not to mention addresses and
phone numbers, is to use a “personal data assistant”, aka Palm
Pilot. I used to use a Day Timer and it was woefully inadequate (you
actually have to pick it up and look at it). Now I use my PDA,
synchronize it with my Outlook program, and I have my schedule,
address book, notepad, etc. at my fingertips. The nice thing is that
should my computer crash, all I have to do is reinstall Outlook and
my PDA programs, synchronize, and everything I need is restored.
